Indie Songstress Embarks on Maiden UK Voyage

Award-winning Australian indie-folk songstress Amy Vee has announced her very first UK tour, commencing in June 2010, in support of the recently released and acclaimed EP Sleeping Dogs Lie.

Amy Vee sets off for UK tourSleeping Dogs Lie was released in September of last year, after months of demo recording and a series of showcases including a spot at the prestigious Canadian Music Week in Toronto, Canada. The EP was recorded at Hazy Cosmic Jive studio in Amy’s coastal hometown of Newcastle, New South Wales. Since then, Vee has toured extensively in Australia, sharing the stage with the artists such as UK troubadour Newton Faulkner and Canada’s Jeff Martin (former Tea Party frontman) bringing her new songs to audiences in Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The EP has been well received in Australia and has seen Vee take home a slew of awards including the prestigious ABC/APRA Songwriters Recognition Award.

“2009 was a massive year for me, musically”, explains Amy, “I’m so pleased with the reaction that the new songs are receiving from audiences and am keen to reach as many people as I can with these songs. They represent a big turning point for me musically and personally and I really believe this recording speaks to people from many walks of life”.

Vee is excited to be playing at some of London’s best acoustic venues throughout the month, including The Halfmoon in Putney, The Troubadour Club in Earl’s Court and The Regal Room in Hammersmith. These are but a few of Amy’s many shows around England and Scotland during her whirlwind tour.

“It’s a dream for me to be touring in the UK and I’m looking forward to visiting for the first time. I’ve always been inspired by British music and I’ve always felt a connection to the place. My great grandmother (who I only met once as a small child), was the Mayor of North Tyneside in the late 1970s. I’ve always wanted to find out more about my English roots and I’m thrilled to be bringing my stories and my music to a place that my ancestors called home”.

Copies of Sleeping Dogs Lie will be available at each of the shows and are available online now from her website
